"I have spent close to 3 months in total staying at Arts Series Hotels, between The Cullen, The Blackman and The Olsen. They are very nice rooms with very comfortable beds and pillows. There's no pool at The Cullen but you are allowed to use the pool at The Olsen which is just down the road in South Yarra."

"Having recently stayed at the Art Series Hotel The Cullen in South Yarra, I was very interested to experience The Olsen. While the former seems to be experiencing some new hotel service challenges, The Olsen seems to have hit the ground running. The service was very professional and guest focussed. In particular, the front desk was very helpful in finding me a room with a bath in a time of limited availability. (Only 1 staff member needed to go to attitude rehab which is not a bad hit rate overall. Still, a reminder to the Gen Y front desk that haughtiness has no place in a hotel - and that guests can and do choose to stay elsewhere because of poor attitude - wouldn't go astray.) The room itself was a very comfortable home away from home for 3 days. The deluxe room with bath provided plenty of floor space (more than enough to do a yoga routine), a supremely comfortable bed with quality linens and great pillows (which I was very grateful for when being confined to bed for a day due to illness), a lounge from which to watch the flat screen TV (when not viewing from bed), atmospheric floor to ceiling views up Chapel Street, a dining table and an adequate work desk. On top of this the kitchenette has good facilities for those who prefer to eat simply rather than having dining out all the time. Having said that, the one room-service meal I had was very tasty and generously proportioned. Another great feature of the room and the hotel generally is the art of John Olsen which is simultaneously stimulating and relaxing. Also, the colour palette used throughout the hotel is very complementary to Olsen's work and makes for a soothing stay. And love the aquarium channel! A fantastic feature of The Olsen is the spa Norbu which is located on the mezzanine floor. They fitted me in for some much needed massage and therapeutic treatments without much notice and then, with professionalism and relaxed good humour, proceeded to deal very skilfully with the nasty knots that "

"I asrrived early on a Fri morning, the receptionist informed me of normal check in time but said he would see if there was a room ready, there was and I was in my room by 10.30. It's very new and modern, I was only on the 3rd floor but they have very heavy double glazed windows and it was so quiet at night and I was facing the railway platforms of South Yarra Station, the kitchen was well equipped and I loved the space in the bathroom with a great walk in shower with good hotwater, the bed was a little firm but it would have been better if I had my own pillow with me. I was in Melbourne to visit fiends who live in Richmond so it was an eastram ride down Chapel street to Richmond and there are the trams that run down Toorak road that will take you into the city centre at Flinders street station. If the rates stay reasonable I will choose here over inner city, the rates in town were higher this week due to all of the events taking place, so this was a good find."

"I travel to Melbourne regularly to visit relatives and have stayed in quite a few different places. Apartments of South Yarra were a delightful surprise. The inside was spacious,clean, comfortable, and very well equipped. The little touches like coffee sachets and shortbread biscuits were lovely. I found a generous supply of personal items added to a comfortable stay. The position in the heart of South Yarra was excellent and even though there is parking available, I could walk everywhere or catch public transport which was very convenient. I will stay there again."
